Cost Benefit Analysis of the Uganda Post Primary Education and Training Expansion and Improvement (PPETEI) Project
Expanding access to schooling in developing countries is critical for achieving poverty reduction and sustained economic growth. Although countries in sub-Saharan Africa have expanded access to primary schooling in the past 15 years, absorbing primary school graduates into secondary school remains a challenge. The Universal Post Primary Education (UPPE) program was introduced by the Government of Uganda in 2007. This paper examines the cost-effectiveness of the UPPE and Training Expansion and Improvement project supported by the African Development Bank during 2008-2014. Based on the expected post secondary school earnings as the only benefit considered, findings show that the project is very sustainable. Sensitivity analysis reveals that the project remains sustainable even if expected benefits are reduced by up to 30% or if project implementation is delayed for up to three years.
